A good list... though I personally think that Falcon is a bit overpowered for 500pt games.

This covers most bases, a small block of infantry (without any warlocks to add protection, these guys are going to have a hard time) and a group of elites to get in nasty with any power armoured enemy around.

So, do you want us to improve this list, or do you want help to fight it?

If you want help changing the list then here are a few changed I would make.

I agree with Lomendil, I think that falcons, well all tanks are a bit much in 500pt games but a good amount of guardians with an aspect to back them up with a bit of heavy suport works best. (IMO)

If I were you (which i'm not) I would also change the farseer's powers... here's wot I would do: give him a witchblade, shuriken pistol, fortune, ghost helm. (I think it's the same points) This is because I've found that mind war isn't as good as it sounds and runes of warding aren't as useful as you think.

I usually take (and I know some of you will call it cheese but...) a wraithlord, a farseer, a few warlocks, and a heap of guardin defenders.

again if this is help to try and improve the list id take out the falcon and get some warlocks with conceal for the gaurdian squads (and try adn up their numbers too) then ofr the heavy weapons get a wave serpent with twin linked star cannons to transport a squad (banshees probs) whcih is just as good at stying alive as a falcon and can have great armament too.

I'd drop the falcon and get the ser a Jetbike and the banshees a serpent, then inflate the guardians to keep the army less min/max.

lol, ive been playing them for so long that i kinda know my stuff about them :P, if i were to start up a second army it would be either ulthwe or saim hann...also i know tons of the codex too ;D, once youve mastered one race then general tactics and that is usually pretty simple with other races once you have a good grasp of the codex

even if it is off topic, 42 is right.

the first codex is the hardest but its not that easy to learn the others, I'm having massive trouble unerstanding SMurfs (for proper this time :P) because its so different to Tau and Eldar (having very little fast units).

its more likr "similar armies come easier after the first" (although it does make rote learning the codex easier)
